I have a lv format with raid1, and one of the pv is fault recently.
I prepare to repair via follow steps:

1. Unplug the fault device and plug new deive
2. Format new device as pv
3. Add new pv to the vg via vgextend (which segfault here)

    # vgextend a /dev/sdc2
    WARNING: Device for PV ZYO8Gj-cxTa-sEUj-vWjM-H5MA-BWgu-Yeuk27 not found
or rejected by a filter.
    Couldn't find device with uuid ZYO8Gj-cxTa-sEUj-vWjM-H5MA-BWgu-Yeuk27.
    WARNING: Device for PV ZYO8Gj-cxTa-sEUj-vWjM-H5MA-BWgu-Yeuk27 not found
or rejected by a filter.
    zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped)  vgextend a /dev/sdc2

4. Repair via lvconvert

Since the segfault, I can not repair the lvm, so I debug into it, I seems
dev parameter is a null pointer, which cause the segfault.

#0  0x000055bec50e4b15 in dev_get_direct_block_sizes (dev=0x0,
physical_block_size=physical_block_size at entry=0x7fff7e169a50,
logical_block_size=logical_block_size at entry=0x7fff7e169a54) at
#1  0x000055bec512cb48 in vg_extend_each_pv (vg=vg at entry=0x55bec75d2820,
pp=pp at entry=0x7fff7e169cb0) at metadata/metadata.c:719

I check the file on git, the issue is fixed on the master branch, but not
backport to 2.02 stable now (my lvm2 version is 2.02.187).
The commit in master is:

# git show 98d420200

    vgextend: check missing device during block size check

    Checking the block size when a device is missing could
    trigger a segfault.

After apply this patch, I can repair the lvm as normal.
Can we backport this commit to 2.02 branch so we can repair lvm on disk
